Program Details:
Employers are keen to locate and hire the best talent possible. This means employers need strategies to identify, recruit, and hire top-quality candidates. Now more than ever, businesses recognize that their best competitive advantage comes from their people.

In addition to finding great employees, employers have to respond to ever-changing environments, including the regulatory environment. A full framework of employment laws exists in Canada, including with respect to hiring and employing people with disabilities.

This course brings together these 2 considerations: We take the need to abide by laws regarding the employment of people living with disabilities and see how that can in fact be turned into a competitive advantage, through finding top talent.
Learning Objectives:
  • Benefits of diverse and inclusive workplaces practices to make change happen
  • Ways to address company culture around employing people with disabilities
  • Identifying and removing barriers
  • Addressing bias and stigma in the workplace
  • Consideration for employees with disabilities
  • Disabilities, functioning, and accommodation
  • Ideas for change
Who should attend:
This program is aimed at employees, management and leadership looking to increase their knowledge on how best to recruit employees of all abilities and turn that into their organization’s competitive advantage.
